005b…Germany Electricity – Future?

Germany Electricity Consumption and source . Germany is committed to shutting down their nuclear power stations by 2022. The second column show consumption on May 1 2018 at 14.25 hrs the third column predicts what will happen when nuclear and coal are shut down and the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine. Note these are for a 15 minute period that’s why they seem low compared to the usual 1 hour figures. The source I used was https://www.smard.de/

Deficit 15,000 MWh, how will that deficit be provided? Yes they can import from other countries but those countries may also have zero or little wind and solar and may need all their production for themselves.
